Cross-Cultural World History investigates the experience of colonisation from both sides of contact (c.1700-1950) and in light of cross-cultural exchanges involving gender and sexuality, trade, travel narratives, conflict and law, and intercultural exchanges between coloniser and colonised. It will cover a range of historical case studies and approaches to cross-cultural contact in world history including in the New World, Australasia and the Pacific and North America, and through applying recent theories of 'contact', space and bodies; the transnational circulation of ideas, people and things; and the place of intercultural exchange in the broader context of colonial violence.
